When it comes to delivering technology, speed matters. This is especially true when it comes to the development process, where getting feedback early and often is the key to meeting critical deadlines.
According to IDC, 90.5% of teams are releasing features with a month lead time or less. Code is shipped with greater velocity than ever due to increased demands and expectations, but with speed comes coding sacrifices in the form of letting quality slip.
Without proper quality control, code can deteriorate, creating technical debt that must ultimately be addressed. In this paper, IDC highlights the importance of code quality and how modern tools can ensure code hygiene across the software development lifecycle without impacting velocity.
